News: Google closes Google Buzz and Code Search

As Google started focussing on its Google+, it is not a surprise that Google Buzz will be closed within a few weeks. It is an ultimate output from the slip-ups of Buzz. Google’s Bradley Horowitz says, "We learned privacy is not a feature... it is foundational to the product. (...) But probably the best lesson we learned is about how to introduce a product. We started very slowly with Google+ -- in a limited Field Trial - in order to listen and learn and gather plenty of real-world feedback". Though Google Buzz was integrated with Gmail and it allowed to share the favorite Google Reader posts automatically, it will no longer be available for us as a Google feature.

At the same time, it is not even a surprise that Google will close Jaiku, a product acquired back in 2007 that was later open-sourced or that Google will disable iGoogle’s social features powered by OpenSocial. Besides, Google will shut down Code Search. It has a great API that was used in plug-ins for software like Eclipse.

"We aspire to build great products that really change people's lives, products they use two or three times a day. To succeed you need real focus and thought—thought about what you work on and, just as important, what you don't work on. It's why we recently decided to shut down some products, and turn others into features of existing products," explains Bradley Horowitz.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
